He has asked me to go thru:
Thanx to: "Karl E. Vogel" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
~~ I had problems with the default syslog setup. Below is the syslog.conf
~~ file we use on our production system. Critical messages go to
~~ /var/adm/messages, other stuff goes to /var/log/syslog.
He has included a sample syslog.conf which is very useful ,
But I need still further info capturable from machines.
Thanx to: Michael Hill <Hill.Michael@tci.com>
Michael has given me the following info which was very useful.
I wrote an article in the December 1996 issue of SysAdmin magazine,
called "Understanding syslog.conf". If you can find that issue, I
think my article would help. It included a program I wrote for
displaying exactly what syslog will do with every message, and the
files are available via FTP from the magazine's Web site at
Michael is a regular writer to SYSADMIN and he is very
helpful. Thank you very much Mr.Michael. I am trying to
understand and implement the stuff you have given out
Thank u for this forum,
